Big Brothers, Big Sisters sought locally
When Hank Hanten's three daughters became adults, he found himself with more time on his hands. He volunteered at various nursing homes and when the opportunity to become a mentor presented itself, Hanten took it.
Hanten, a Hudson resident who volunteers with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northwest Wisconsin, went through an interview process and background check before being placed with a boy from Somerset.
"We have a ball together," Hanten said.
